Another reason to not do this is that RDF requires that each occurance
of a datatyped literal be decorated with 'rdf:datatype="big ugly URI"'
in the XML. It scares away folks who look at the XML notation and for
questionable gain, given maturity of RDF tool support for datatyping
(eg. fancy searching, indexing etc). Maybe things will improve as the
DAWG query work comes together.

I'm happy seeing this as a doap: property, perhaps subpropertying a
relevant DC term in a neighbourly sort of a way.
